3. Babylon 5: Legions of Fire: Out of the Darkness. Peter David.
4. All Clear. Connie Willis.
5. Champagne for One by Rex Stout
6. Lorna Doone. R.D. Blackmore. 1869. 658 pages.

Hello, Becky. How are you doing? I'm a follower of yours who hasn't followed much, but am endeouring to do a better job with that. I hope you are having a good holiday season. I just recently read Drood. I won't ruin anything for you, but simply say that I found it enjoyable...different, but enjoyable.
Take care.

I've read some Willis short stories but have yet to get to her novels. I need to remedy that, especially after all the awards that Blackout/All Clear gathered this year.

Are you going to read Ruth? Oh....that was such a controversial book when it was first published. Ruth is a sad character.

Glad you're joining us again this year for the TBR Pile Challenge!

You've got a nice looking list, here. I plan to read Drood in 2012 as well (probably late in the year, after reading Dickens's Our Mutual Friend and Wilkie Collins's Woman in White).

I haven't read Nicholas Nickelby, but I'm a fan of Dickens in general.

Trollope, Bronte, and Gaskell all sound great, too.

Good luck!

Lorna Doone is my favourite of all English novels, As an under-rated classic, this is one of the most complete books ever written.
